    Default The "new" LeMons race car has been painted!

    This should make some purists angry...

    And yes, our race car # is 46!

    Saw it Friday at William's Auto Body. Was there with my neighbor getting a quote to have her 72 240Z auto trans painted.

    Default Welcome to the "tribute" club

    see attached....

    Pete and I wish you as much luck as we've had with our 240 race car. Okay, good luck not the blown head gaskets, broken rings, holed pistons, steering wheel coming off at 100mph kind of luck.

    Paintjob looks rather familiar, Check out my BRE LeMons racer...



    #46 was taken for that race, but we will be using #46 for our ChumpCar race in three weeks.

    What race are you entering? Let me know if you need any advice or setup info. Like d240zx2 said, Troy is another great source of info.

    EDIT: Was that you guys who rolled the S130 in LeMons after clipping another car? That was a sad ending for the ZX.

    Jeff, yes, that was my ZX that was rolled at THill back in May.

    Well, the results are in. After having run as high as 6th place, some non-mechanical problems in the last 30 minutes of the race resulted in us finishing 11th overall out of 121 cars. Still a respectable finish (my highest finish in 7 events!).

    To top things off, the car was signed by Pete Brock at last weekends Historic Races at Laguna Seca!

    It's going to be hard to change the paint now that it's been "endorsed" by Pete himself! John Morton was going to come over in the afternoon to check it out and put his signature on it, but was interrupted by an unplanned trip to the hospital when he was t-boned by another car and flipped while driving 1 of 3 existing 1958 Scarab race cars!

    We'll get him to sign it when he makes his way back up here to NorCal.

    Here's a great pic of us "leading the pack" during one of the infrequent yellow flags:

    Wow, what's with the BRE livery on all the Lemons cars...

    Rob at the Z Garage and now this car...Not exactly a "tribute" to BRE.

    At least it is still a GREAT paint scheme on a 240Z.
